So I joined Gold’s Gym Jan of 2012- 1st pict is from summer of 2011, I was at 207lbs, 2nd pict is July of 2013, last pict is of past race. Since I have joined: did 1st 5k race in July of 2012 and finished in 43min-a year later finished in 32 min and got 1st place in my age group (pict #2) I ran Tunnels to Towers 2012 and 2013, did a 5k race in Brewster w/ a time of 29.50 in Oct of 2012 and completed the Tough Mudder race Oct 2013-10+miles with obstacles.Oct 26th I ran a 5k race and finished in 28.40 my best time ever. Since I joined Gold’s Gym a year and a half ago I have lost and maintained a loss of over 90lbs. Without the help of Gold’s Gym this would never of been possible- without the great staff of Carmel Gold’s Gym- the friendly staff that says hi/bye and asks how you are when you come in- and know you by name the instructors that are enthusiastic, and fun- they notice when you miss a class are great and the members of the gym are friendly and inviting. Never once was I intimidated to ask a question or try something new. The schedule works for all different schedules, and changes often so you are never bored in a class. The challenges thru out the year keep you motivated the summer race across the country keep me going every day, even though I am not working and the Feast the Least during the holidays also keep me motivated. Had it not been for the caring and supportive staff at Gold’s Gym I definitely would not have the success I have, or be attending the gym 5-7 days a week.
